Lying Cat will only speak when someone is lying, even when they don’t know they are.
- Saga #14

One of my favourite moments from Saga so far. To give a little more context, Sophie was sold by her parents and forced to work as a sex slave which is why she feels “dirty”. The way the writer used Lying Cat to reinforce that Sophie is not in any way “dirty” or tainted was brilliant.

I do this thing where I start out aiming to record an instrumental piece of music for fun so that I don’t have to worry about vocals or whether or not it’s any good. Never works, i always end up liking it and wanting to add vocals, so i recorded the first melody that came to mind. I think it needs to be better but I like the guitar work, it’s sort of post-rocky but a little bit more upbeat.

Loved this scene and song so much.

Always makes me smile. The Office finale was the best.

I know it won’t be the film that people talk about but “Patch Adams” is a film I love so much. I love it because it’s human, it’s touching and it teaches how important it is to have a sense of humour (about everything) and to make people laugh whenever you can. It’s a film that is extremely quotable.

“You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.”
"What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference."
"Now you have the ability to keep me from graduating. You can keep me from getting the title and the white coat. But you can’t control my spirit, gentlemen. You can’t keep me from learning, you can’t keep me from studying. So you have a choice: you can have me as a professional colleague, passionate, or you can have me as an outspoken outsider, still adamant. Either way I’ll probably still be viewed as a thorn. But I promise you one thing: I am a thorn that will not go away"
"See what no one else sees. See what everyone chooses not to see… out of fear, conformity or laziness. See the whole world anew each day!"

It’s also where I heard Sonnet XVII for the first time.

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly without complexities or pride. I love you because I know no other way then this. So close that your hand, on my chest, is my hand. So close, that when you close your eyes, I fall asleep."

Lastly and most tellingly, the opening of the film. It always resonated with me.

"All of life is a coming home. Salesmen, secretaries, coal miners, beekeepers, sword swallowers, all of us. All the restless hearts of the world, all trying to find a way home. It’s hard to describe what I felt like then. Picture yourself walking for days in the driving snow; you don’t even know you’re walking in circles. The heaviness of your legs in the drifts, your shouts disappearing into the wind. How small you can feel, and how far away home can be. Home. The dictionary defines it as both a place of origin and a goal or destination. And the storm? The storm was all in my mind. Or as the poet Dante put it: In the middle of the journey of my life, I found myself in a dark wood, for I had lost the right path. Eventually I would find the right path, but in the most unlikely place."

RIP, Robin, and thanks for so many great films.

Basically in the kind of mood where I want to burn down the fucking universe.

This is my default mood. I’ll bring the matches.

Owen - One Of These Days

One of these days I’ll make some money
And buy myself those things that I want:
Acrylic paints, acoustic guitar strings, a new bicycle seat 
For my ride over to your house each night
And one of these days I’ll get a real job
One that actually pays
Like my dad had

Picking a favourite Owen song is an impossible task but “One Of These Days” is definitely up there and the video is fantastic.

Once you get this you have to say 5 things you like about yourself, publicly, then send this to ten of your favorite followers. Pretty please do this? — Asked by 1waywardbird
  1. My exceptionally large penis.
  2. My rock hard abs.
  3. My magnetic personality.
  4. My unrivalled charisma.
  5. My ability to lie when responding to Tumblr asks.

In all seriousness, though, I wouldn’t normally do these but since you asked nicely.

  1. I think that I have great depth. Of course, I very much dislike that nobody ever has any interest in exploring that depth, but it is there.
  2. My compassion and my empathy.
  3. How open and honest I am.
  4. My resilience, which is not something I thought I would ever say but I really should be dead so I guess I do have some.
  5. My sense of humour and that I’m quite quick-witted.
Can’t quite believe that Garden State is 10 years old. Still love that film a tremendous amount and I really need to watch it again soon.
